SCHEDULE CHANGES: Winter Storm Forces UNG Athletics To Alter Schedules (Updated 2/15 @ 8:15 PM)

DAHLONEGA, Georgia – (UNGAthletics.com) – The winter weather storm Pax has forced the University of North Georgia to alter this week's schedule of athletic events and ceremonies.  Check back at UNGAthletics.com for up-to-the-minute schedule adjustments and announcements.  All UNG campuses were closed on Tuesday (Feb. 11), Wednesday (Feb. 12) and Thursday (Feb. 13).  The UNG Dahlonega campus reopens on Friday (Feb. 14) at 10:00 AM.

The men's and women's basketball games with Francis Marion, scheduled for Thursday (Feb. 13), have been moved to Sunday (Feb. 16).  The evening was also scheduled to be Spirit Night as well as a Make-A-Wish reveal for a local child.  Both of those festivities have been moved to Wednesday, February 26 and will not be a part of this Sunday's basketball games.  The new game times for Sunday are 1:30 and 3:30 PM. 

Saturday's basketball games with UNC Pembroke are unaltered and will move on as scheduled with the women's game at 1:30 and the men's tip off set for 3:30.  The day will also feature the Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony which is still scheduled for 11:30 AM in the UNG Dining Hall Banquet Room.

The women's tennis match at Brenau on Wednesday (Feb. 12) has been postponed.  Both the men and women were scheduled to open Peach Belt Conference play on Saturday (Feb. 15) hosting Columbus State at the UNG Tennis Complex at Yahoola Creek Park, but that has been rescheduled for March 5. 

The baseball team's three-game series at Pfeiffer, originally scheduled for Friday through Sunday, has been adjusted to feature the two teams playing single game on Saturday (Feb. 15) at 7:00 PM before a doubleheader on Sunday (Feb. 16) beginning at 12:00 PM.  The game has also been moved to a home game for the Nighthawks with all three non-conference contests now scheduled to be played at Bob Stein Stadium.

The UNG softball team's home opener with Lincoln Memorial scheduled for Saturday (Feb. 15) has been tentatively rescheduled for Monday (Feb. 17) for a 1:00 doubleheader at Haines & Carolyn Hill Stadium.
